Things that stand out from my morning drive through a Colorado valley surrounded by mountains.

1) A young deer played chicken with me on the highway. We both survived. I stopped in time. The deer looked at me and disappeared into the forest.

2) A baby moose started racing me down the highway. Then stopped and crossed behind me. It had knobby knees and the large antlers.

3) On the porch of a log house I passed a woman sat with her coffee. Her view of the mountains and valley was magnificent. I could imagine sitting there every morning if it wasn't so far from a city.

Vacation is almost over.

Here we are along with about 150 other people standing on the arm and taking photos. It was truly awesome. No trouble getting there and the hike up was through the forest. A beautiful day for a hike. I heard on TV last night there were 10,000+ people over the weekend.
